Starting a New Quilt

   I've always admired Sunshine and Shadow quilts...especially Amish ones. And I've always wanted to try one. I even have Eleanor Burns' book on how to make one in a day...but I can't find it!
   Plus...the fabric I want to use isn't strip's boxes of berries, and I have to fussy cut. So, in for a dime, in for a dollar...I'm making it from 2 1/2" squares.
   Here's a first look as I'm putting it together...what do you think? I'll post more as it gets put together. One of the joys of doing a quilt this way is that you can rearrange the pieces easily because they don't get sewn together in strips.
